            by David McCord

Frozen with snow.

Friends
by Jeff Foxworthy

I don’t think I could bear it
Life is much better
With good friends to share it.

from Quandary
by Robert Frost
 
            Never have I been sad or glad
            That there was such a thing as bad.
            There had to be, I understood,
            For there to have been any good.
            It was by having been contrasted
            That good and bad so long had lasted.
            That’s why discrimination reigns.
            That’s why we need a lot of brains
            If only to discriminate
‘Twixt what to love and what to hate.
To quote the oracle Delphi,
Love thou thy neighbour as thyself, aye,
And hate him as thyself thou hatest.
There quandary is at its greatest.
